Send summer out with a bang — literally — at one of the Hudson Valley’s favorite annual traditions. The West Point Band will conclude its “Music Under the Stars” concert series with its annual Labor Day Celebration on Sept. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Trophy Point Amphitheater. The rain date is Sept. 2.

One of the band’s most popular events, the performance will end with cannon blasts and a spectacular fireworks show over the Hudson River. As always, this concert is free and open to all. No tickets are required, but RSVPing at westpointband.com will help with crowd estimation.

Culminating in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” with live cannon fire and a fantastic fireworks display, this concert will feature classics of the band’s repertoire, including marches from Sousa and others, the martial airs of the band’s field music group the Hellcats and a lively rock n’ roll set from the Benny Havens Band. Bring your picnic and spend an evening taking in the beautiful views at Trophy Point and the music of the West Point Band.
